When Marie Flanigan Interiors set out to design the space for the newly opened Lam Bespoke in Memorial Green, it was essential that the aesthetic of the shop match the reputation of the space’s occupant. As one of Houston’s premiere custom furniture designers, Lam Bespoke needed a shop that was the kind of curated experience it gives to its customers.
“The Lams desired a refined environment that would encapsulate the elegance of their collections and the luxury lifestyle each piece evokes,” says Kelsey Grant, designer at Marie Flanigan Interiors. The new store’s focal point rests around the central cash register island and the logo wall behind it. The design firm’s goal was to craft a modern version of a plaster relief or engraving, brought to life by Segreto Finishes.
For Marie Flanigan, the most important aspect of the design was ensuring it was not only beautiful, but incorporated the holy trinity of balance, texture, and light. Lam Bespoke’s interior features timeless materials like European oak, plaster countertops and brick flooring, which give the space an understated depth and richness that allows the contents of the showroom to shine. Abundant natural light streams in through expansive steel windows, illuminating the open layout. Meanwhile the exposed ceilings and a neutral palette contribute to the airy, effortless ambience.
There are a number of custom details in the space, but Grant says one of the most dynamic is the custom wall mural. “The Gracie mural wall is spectacular,” she says. “Each brushstroke is hand painted by master artists, and the landscape composition echoes the serene and sophisticated spirit of Lam Bespoke’s product offerings. If you look closely, you’ll also find a special memento within the scenery — a sweet grouping of four sheep, each one representing a member of the Lam family.”
Lam Bespoke has long made it a point to create exquisite, unique, and finely tailored designs that echo the personalities and needs of its clients. With its new shop, it now has a space that does the same thing for its owners.
